Huguenots at the Library

Could you be descended from a Huguenot?

The Huguenots were French Protestants who were forced to flee from religious persecution in France during the 17th century. They fled to other parts of Europe and many eventually wound up in North America.

Many people with Huguenot ancestors belonged to the Huguenot Society of Canada. Unfortunately, the Huguenot Society of Canada ceased operation in 2006. Since then, their library collection has been on semi-permanent loan to the OGS provincial library. We hold books and journals that cover topics in Huguenot heritage and genealogy.

We also hold a series of Huguenot Family Papers that can be viewed by appointment at the provincial office.
